This is one of the most breathtaking and beautiful houses I have ever seen. Its iconic front facade is extraordinary and fascinating and the fact that this house is build in 1854 is mind blowing. The garden in front is well maintained and creates calm and relaxing atmosphere. I loved the interior of the building because of its specific wall paintings. An intriguing history surrounds the family that owned the house. Also a good feature is that its part of a museum tour which contains several other iconic houses of other famous Bulgarian revolutionaries. It is a must see and I strong recommend visiting it!!!

There are a number of house museums to visit, but we were only able to visit 2 due to time restrictions. There are a number of interesting information boards in multiple languages, and a fascinating display of historical information & items. Renovated sympathetically & worth a visit. Good value for money.

Of all the places on the municipal combo-ticket for house museums in Koprivshtitsa, this is the one which is not connected to a celebrated figure in Bulgarian culture and history. It was obviously commissioned by a wealthy man and according to available information built by craftsmen from Plovdiv in the typical National Revival style of the mid 19th century

In 1906 the house was sold to a merchant called Lyutov, after whom the house is now named. Very impressive is the 'Hayet', the central room with elaborate ornamental paintings. In the house now are displayed various textiles like typical Koprivshtitsa felt rugs, but also traditional dresses.

Unlike the other houses with their information boards on culture and history this is a place to visit for its ethnographic exhibits and for its attractive architecture.

The well preserved Lyutov House has impressive architecture, richly painted walls with murals showing sights from the Orient (the owner and merchant Petko Lyutov used to trade in Egypt) and lovely wood-carved ceilings - a typical example from the times of the Bulgarian Revival. Interesting items are exhibited there - furniture some brought from Vienna, clothes, other household items and even an air-freshening fountain situated on the second floor - that re-creates the atmosphere of those times.
It is also included in the combo ticket for 6 of the house-museums in Koprivshtitsa.

Enter the gate to a wonderful garden.
The house is fine, and makes it possible to imagine wha life was like in the late 1800. The garden is a pleasnat place o sit in with a book and relax...
I would recommend visiting at least 4 of the houses, it's a 6 in 1 ticket.

The only house not included is the Oslekov mansion, which we found most fascinating and beautiful, well worth the extra 2 leva ticket to visit. The guy at the entrance selling tickets and souvenirs is very nice and knowledgeable.

Delightfully set in a pleasant tranquil garden it has a gorgeous profile. Bright blue wings, a double stairway to the entrance and a magnificent ornate canopy all make for a beguiling scene.

It was purchased in 1906 by Lyutov a local milk merchant, over fifty years after its completion by master artists from Plovdiv.

Beautiful rooms are to be admired within. With original furniture from Vienna it is an elegant exemplar of how the wealthy lived in those times.

An exhibition of grey felt rugs made in the area in the 18th and 19th centuries is to be seen on the ground floor.

The house was built in 1854 and it was bought by Lyutov's family in 1906. Nowadays a museum, its showing a lot of different crafts but most interesting is the wooden carved and painted ceiling inside the house.

our sentiments exactly! And we drove specifically to this town to experience the house museums.....but we were bored silly. And we love museums and love history. Go figure.

We bought the full ticket.......but this was one of the two we went to. When we left Plodiv, i gave our ticket to the owner of the Guesthouse Tomovi, where we stayed.

As the saying goes: different strokes for different folks!

This house museum is beautifully preserved and restored and gives you an idea of how the upper class lived. All the room are furbished authentically from the bedrooms and guest quarters to the basement storage. Unfortunately no photos are allowed to be taken inside. Definitely worth a visit.
